Hideo Kojima has confirmed that Death Stranding studio Kojima Productions is all in favour of increasing into making motion pictures.
“In the future, Kojima Productions will start making films,” says Kojima in an interview with BBC Newsbeat. “If you can do one thing well, then you can do everything well.”
Kojima goes on to elucidate that this eventual pivot will also be attributed to the altering media panorama and the way the upcoming leisure scene will have an effect on how media is delivered and the way it’s perceived.
“I think within the next three to four years, everything will move to streaming—games, movies, and TV shows,” Kojima says. “When that happens, movies, TV shows, and games will be competing in the same space.”
You may actually argue that we’re already there now. Netflix had beforehand recognized Fortnite as one of many service’s greatest opponents as a result of competitors for time and multi-media display screen house. The concept that studios finally producing a number of types of media (in addition to media hybrids) is not that far off from the place we at the moment are.
The concept of Kojima sitting within the director’s chair of a serious movie venture, although, has all the time been particularly fascinating. To put it flippantly, Kojima has all the time relied on extra historically cinematic cutscenes to inform his online game tales. Death Stranding is arguably essentially the most…excessive instance of his reliance on hands-off storytelling in a online game.
Of course, Kojima has produced some unbelievable tales up to now, however we marvel if his expertise will translate to conventional filmmaking in terms of ideas reminiscent of pacing. We’re actually wanting to see extra of no matter comes subsequent from Kojima productions.
